A New Way to Wi-Fly!

A New Way to Wi-Fly!

In-room Reviews: Beijing on Any Budget
On the same day the Lost Girls and I turned in the first draft of our manuscript, I boarded a plane to China to celebrate.

LG Obession: Idlewild

LG Obession: Idlewild
I didn’t think it was possible to love bookstores even more than I already do (the scent of freshly printed paperbacks mixed with coffee grounds practically makes me high) until the random Thursday morning I stumbled upon Idlewild in New York City. I’d been granted a full day off work, and...

How We Stay in Touch

How We Stay in Touch
The Lost Girls often remark, if we were traveling a few years ago, or really any other time but the present, it would be a heck of a lot harder to keep in touch with our loved ones. Now, in addition to the travelers’ classics-postcards and phone cards-we can keep an online web log (like the one...
